About Earth Defense Force 4.1: The Shadow of New Despair

The wild sci-fi action of the Earth Defense Force series comes to the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system for the first time as Earth Defense Force 4.1: The Shadow of New Despair, a complete reimagining of Earth Defense Force 2025 (known in Japan as Earth Defense Force 4) with the addition of silky-smooth framerates, beefed-up graphics, and tons of new and rearranged content. After selecting from one of four unique playable classes and customizing a loadout from hundreds upon hundreds of weapons, players will lead NPC troops into city-wide battles against hordes of seemingly endless giant bugs, robots, and other colossal enemies.

In Earth Defense Force 4.1: The Shadow of New Despair, players will take on extraterrestrial invaders as the versatile Ranger, the aerial Wing Diver, the vehicle-summoning Air Raider, or the armored Fencer. Call in airstrikes, commandeer tanks, and operate giant robots to obliterate the alien scum that threatens our planet! Two players can enjoy local campaign co-op and head-to-head versus modes, while online co-op features 98 total missions (9 exclusive to online play) with support for up to four players to increase the odds against this gargantuan incursion.
